Introduction

Background

The Chemical Industries Council of Malaysia (CICM) was established in 1978 as an industry group under the aegis of the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM). The primary objective of the CICM then was to organise the chemical industry in Malaysia into a cohesive group to represent Malaysia's interest in the ASEAN Chemical Industries Council (ACIC).


As the industry grew, CICM's interest and activities also expanded and it was felt necessary for CICM to be established as a separate legal entity. Therefore on March 23, 1982, CICM was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee.

Today, the Council has more than 100 members comprising manufacturers, traders, distributors & companies providing services to the chemical industry. It has also established affiliation with the various sub-sector chemical groups in Malaysia since year 2001, with the view to establish a stronger and better representation of the Malaysian chemical and chemical related industry. These sub-sector chemical groups comprise of the oleochemicals, petrochemicals, paints, fertilizers, pesticides, industrial gases, biodiesel and coating resins sectors.
